Actually Planned Parenthood charges for its services, those services are not automatically free. Their charges look to be on a sliding scale, depending on the person's income, and there may be instances in the case of very low income where they may charge nothing for their services.

He was married (or at least in a stable, long-term relationship) at the time and they had agreed they weren’t having kids. Doctors kept telling him they’d change their minds. He has a chronic health condition and I think she also has health issues, so they just weren’t up to having children.
I went in to have my tubes tied at age 23 and single. The clinic staff discussed it with me, saying, "what if you meet Mr. Right, but he wants kids?" I said, "Then he's not Mr. Right." They did the procedure. Mr. Right did want kids, but wanted me more. No regrets after 35 years of marriage.
